Are you someone that is having a hard time dealing with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues? Looking for a group of kind, respectful people to chat about mental health and make life-changing connections? You have arrived at the right place! The idea We all need a little support, kindness and good friends, especially when life gets tough. Dealing with mental health issues is not the easiest thing to do & trying to figure them out by yourself is exhausting. Why not let others be there for you? The event is designed for people with mental health issues to socialize and make meaningful connections. If you are going through a mental battle and feeling lonely, this is the perfect opportunity to put yourself out there. Remember that the support you’re looking for sometimes doesn’t come from the crowd that you are familiar with. YOU CAN DO THIS! How it works Have you heard of the saying "you're the average of the five people you spend time with."? Well, the idea is quite similar but not the exact same. We place you in a group of 5 according to your interests in mental health for an evening (based on the questionnaire below). Whether that might be with female/male fellows, a specific mental health condition or just sharing experience with mental health in general. Think mini-support groups but less intimidating, less anxiety, more relevant topics. It’s perfect for first-timers with anxiety! There will also be opportunities to mingle and connect with the rest of the crowd. For those that have been to our regular support groups, you might find yourself surrounded by lots of beloved familiar faces there! Light snacks, coffee & tea will be provided. Agenda 7: Checking In 7:20: LiftMeUp Welcome 7:30: Small Group Discussion Starts 8:30: Mingle & Connect with the rest of the room Reserve a spot!
